WN: This lovely “Christian” Nationalist so exhibits the fruit of the Spirit, and Christlikeness! One must ask:

Why such hatred? Why such evil?


In footage obtained by CNN, shot one day before the 2020 election by a documentary film crew, Stone can be heard saying, “F**k the voting, let’s get right to the violence.”

Stone would ordinarily probably own this comment, but there’s a wrench: On Wednesday, clips from the same Danish film crew’s documentary will be shown during the televised public hearing by the House Select Committee Investigating the January 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol. This footage, and other clips that have yet to be released, will be used to reinforce the evidence that there was a plan for violence and election denial long before Jan. 6 and even days before the 2020 presidential election.

Please see the interview with the Danish filmmakers, Christoffer Guldbrandsen and Frederik Marbell:

CNN reports there’s no evidence leading anyone to believe that the person speaking in the clips provided by the Danish film crew is anyone other than Stone his repulsive self, but that hasn’t stopped Stone from pathetically railing against the media.

According to The Hill, the House committee “reviewed three years’ worth of footage and ultimately settled on playing 14 clips totaling about 10 minutes of footage at Wednesday’s hearing,” but which clips the public will see has yet to be determined.

The Washington Post initially reported on the documentary from filmmakers Christoffer Guldbrandsen and Frederik Marbell in early March 2022. Titled A Storm Foretold, the film follows Stone in his feverish efforts to support Trump in the deception that the 2020 election was stolen by Joe Biden. It was during the reporting of this story when he was asked for comment that Stone alleged the documentary footage of him were “deepfakes” and denied association with the Jan. 6 insurrection.

“Any claim, assertion, or implication that I knew about, was involved in, or condoned the illegal acts at the Capitol on Jan 6 is categorically false, and there is no witness or document that proves otherwise,” Stone wrote in an email to the Post at the time.

On Monday, the Post reported that Stone repeated the allegations on Telegram, writing, “CNN airs fraudulent deep fake videos and expects anyone to believe them.”

Another clip, also obtained by CNN, shows Stone suggesting on Nov. 1, 2020 that Trump should ignore the actual results of the 2020 election and simply announce his victory.

Tuesday, CNN released this video footage of Stone describing the plan to challenge the 2020 election results; it was filmed four months before Election Day.

“I really do suspect it’ll still be up in the air. When that happens, the key thing to do is to claim victory. Possession is nine-tenths of the law. No, we won.”

Stone was also caught in the film bitching about the White House Council Office a week after Jan. 6, apparently because they said Trump wasn’t legally allowed to provide preemptive pardons.

In December 2020, Stone received a pardon from Trump, commuting his 40-month prison sentence after the MAGA confidant had been indicted on charges in 2019 of lying to Congress about what he and then-candidate Trump knew about the Russian plan to undermine Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Stone’s indictment included witness tampering, where, according to the Post, federal investigators allege he repeatedly chided a possible witness, even threatening them with a directive to “prepare to die.”
